Let me tell you something Balto. A dog can not make this journey alone, but maybe a wolf can. - Balto (1995)
I cant believe this has so many notes! everyone EVERYONE i have ever talked to has never heard of Balto :/
How have people not heard of Balto!?
fun fact this film is not a Disney film
"loved into being" will always make me cry
He was a literal angel.
I guess what I find problematic in the way men’s-rights issues can be framed in terms of losing out to feminists; there seems to be an idea that as women’s rights advance, men will lose out or be marginalized. Is that zero-sum logic wrong?
It depends. A discussion of women’s gender rights can quite naturally lead into a discussion of the ways that men also experience discrimination and defamation, including the institutional variety. But sometimes men do receive a message that this is a zero-sum game—that vastly complex issues like violence, family rights, cultural representations, and so on tend to have a meaningful and actionable “gender” dimension only insofar as they concern women and girls. In theory and often in practice, advancing women’s rights shouldn’t mean freezing out men or vilifying them as a group. But frequently, at the levels of both discourse and policy, it does. That should be confronted and rejected, in my view. But it should be done in a way that acknowledges the legitimacy and necessity of many pro-female perspectives and campaigns.

i cant even make it past the table of contents im laughing too hard
WHAT IS THIS BOOK!?!
It’s called “Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes: A No-Bullshit Guide to World Mythology”
By Cory O’Brien, and it looks highly entertaining. :D
Gilgamesh: THE ULTIMATE BROMANCE
Give it here, now.
Sweet Fluffy Gods why is there not an audiobook version?
I need to find this book.
The first time Iv’e wanted to read something since Metro 2033.
guys…look what we did :D
Chaos and the Double Pendulum
A chaotic system is one in which infinitesimal differences in the starting conditions lead to drastically different results as the system evolves.
Summarized by mathematician Edward Lorenz, ”Chaos [is] when the present determines the future, but the approximate present does not approximately determine the future.”
There’s an important distinction to make between a chaotic system and a random system. Given the starting conditions, a chaotic system is entirely deterministic. A random system, on the other hand, is entirely non-deterministic, even when the starting conditions are known. That is, with enough information, the evolution of a chaotic system is entirely predictable, but in a random system there’s no amount of information that would be enough to predict the system’s evolution.
The simulations above show two slightly different initial conditions for a double pendulum — an example of a chaotic system. In the left animation both pendulums begin horizontally, and in the right animation the red pendulum begins horizontally and the blue is rotated by 0.1 radians (≈ 5.73°) above the positive x-axis. In both simulations, all of the pendulums begin from rest.Mathematica code posted here.

nobody says it but we all know what this is about
This picture is weirdly genius
So there’s this place in New South Wales called Yass and there is a mcdonalds there and well…..
"my ass"open 24 hours
my father told me once to never date anyone who talks smoothly around you from the start because if someone likes you they should be a little nervous and honestly i think that’s some of the best advice anyone has ever given me
